You’re home alone. It is a stormy night and the power went out. You hear strange noises coming from upstairs. Drip, drip, drip. ‘Probably just the faucet’, you think. Drip, drip, drip. There it goes again. You run up the stairs and turn the faucet completely off. You walk back downstairs and sit on the couch waiting for the storm to pass over. Your phone loudly vibrates beside you and you receive a message from an unknown number. ‘Drip, drip, drip’, your phone reads. Scared, you reply, ‘Who are you?’ with no answer. You hear it again. Drip, drip, drip. You run upstairs and turn the faucet off. You then receive another text, ‘Drip, drip, drip’. By this point, you are confused and scared. You run downstairs, curl up on the sofa in fear and call the number. Ring…ring…ring… It answers. “WHO ARE YOU?” you ask.

And you hear it through the phone:

Drip, drip, drip.

        So someone in your house that you didn’t know was there, is texting you drip and turning your faucet on when you turn it off doesn’t at least intrigue you?
        The biggest problem with this pasta is that it was just a bit shorter than it needed to be, I feel that the author could do a lot better if they work on that small problem.

          A leaky faucet and a text from some prankster? No, that doesn’t intrigue me.

          As for the phone call part, I would leave. Clearly, whoever is doing this is upstairs where my leaky faucet is, so I would head outside, where my car is.

          You can leave a poop trail if you want, but I prefer clean underwear when I go talk to the police about the idiot who broke in my house to scare me with a leaky faucet.

    Wow… BlueBeans, always so volatile…

    If this happened to me in real life, yeah, it’d put me on edge, but I’d also definitely call the cops, not curl up on the couch and call the number. As a creepy pasta, I just need more.

      I wouldnt run upstairs to turn of the faucet, I would call my parents (im not an adult) instead.

    Shitty version of “Drip, Drip, Drip” mixed with “Who Was Phone”. Also, mods, why do you guys even approve “BUT WHO WAS X” comments? The old administration banned them for a reason.

    6/10.

    Decent take on the old “OMG THE BAD GUY IS IN YOUR HOUSE HE’S ON YOUR PHONE HE’S CALLING YOUR CELL!” thing. Would be better if the last line was clear that it was the “drip drip drip” of the character’s own faucet, and not just water dripping because he is haunted by some water demon somewhere.

    Er, sorry. *I* am haunted by some water demon.

    Bla bla bla 2nd person is lame.

    Who was phone??? REally this is still on the site? Ok theres an atmosphere but no pay off. Were you just afraid of the cliche blood dripping? Well I would rather have that than the story stopping half way.

      Dude, it wasn’t the faucet texting. Obviously there was someone in the house messing with him.

      You just wait. Our personal is working on it. You should recieve a call between 2-5am from our nightime plumber when he’s done localizing the source of the problem.

      Thanks for your cooperation!
